I stumbled on this CD unexpectedly at a used music store this weekend. Post-coma, in the years of supposed deep decline, here's Jerry having immense amounts of fun playing classic jazz tunes at David Grisman's place with some mutual friends. If you haven't heard it, as I hadn't, get it from your local library and have a listen. It made me wonder if there's any kind of music that Jerry *couldn't* be inspired by. His joy and delight here are palpable. And of course Grisman dances like a hummingbird across the mandolin strings.

It was hearing an British GD tribute band (called Cosmic Charlies)playing a 'So What Jam' that sent me in search of the original and sparked my interest in Miles Davis. One of the best http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4TbrgIdm0E

For more great stuff from this era, be sure to check out the collections on Shady Grove, The Pizza Tapes, Not For Kids Only, Garcia/Grisman, and more...

For me, some of the best of JG's career... (well, after 1980)... it demonstrates that he could still BRING it when the material interested him, and it once again shows his wide range of style and total musicianship.
